Being a Squirrel
When you join Squirrels, you’ll be introduced to lots of new activities, people and things. Here’s everything you need to know.
Activities and what you’ll get up to
Become an expert in something you love, or try something shiny and new. There’s a badge to suit each and every Squirrel.
Completing awards challenges you to do more, learn more and be more. See what’s on offer and start your journey to the top.
Moving up to Beavers
Eventually, it’ll be time to say goodbye to Squirrels and explore your next big adventure with Beavers.
Uniform and badge placement
You don’t need a uniform to join. But once you’ve settled in, you’ll start speedily earning badges, and you’ll need to know where to put them!
All of our leaders are trained volunteers, working to make sure Scouting is safe, inclusive and accessible. Some lead the Colony week in and week out. Others visit occasionally to help run a session or drop in to share their skills. No matter how much time you have to spare, find out about volunteering on your own terms.
